Wales’ three-time Grand Slam winning prop Adam Jones is hopeful that he will have the legs to make it to the 2015 Rugby World Cup
Jones will be 34 when the next World Cup comes around and with the Welsh team on the rise the Ospreys man is desperate to remain in the mix as they look to add further silverware to their collection.
“I can’t see me retiring just yet - I’d like to sort of make, maybe, the next World Cup,” Jones told the BBC.
“If I don’t I’ll [still] be pretty happy.”
While Jones may be entering the final years of his career, the Welsh squad is currently infused with youth with Jamie Roberts the eldest player in the back-line at 25 and the 24-year-old Six Nations Player of the Tournament Dan Lydiate the ‘old man’ of the back row.
Jones admits the performances of the youngsters have been incredible and he is confident that they will push on from here.
“They [the younger boys] were more relaxed than me, they were fantastic,” enthused Jones.
“Nothing seems to faze them, which is pretty good when you’re that age.
“They are all awesome rugby players… it’s as if they were out on the park in a Saturday afternoon playing for the youth team.
“They’re that good and that laid back. Touch wood, we’ll carry on now.”
